Foucault and the Modern International : Silences and Legacies for the Study of World Politics Paperback / softback
Edited by Philippe Bonditti, Didier Bigo, Frederic Gros
Part of the The Sciences Po Series in International Relations and Political Economy series
This book addresses the possibilities of analyzing the modern international through the thought of Michel Foucault.
The broad range of authors brought together in this volume question four of the most self-evident characteristics of our contemporary world-'international', 'neoliberal', 'biopolitical' and 'global'- and thus fill significant gaps in both international and Foucault studies.
The chapters discuss what a Foucauldian perspective does or does not offer for understanding international phenomena while also questioning many appropriations of Foucault's work.
This transdisciplinary volume will serve as a reference for both scholars and students of international relations, international political sociology, international political economy, political theory/philosophy and critical theory more generally.
